The day threatened rain and hourly I checked the Bureau of Meteorology website to see what was in store for Rebecca and Leon's wedding day. When I met them a year ago we had talked of soft winter sun, beautiful sunsets and mild days. Today looked nothing like our dreams. I just hoped that the rain would hold of so that Rebecca and Leon could have the beach side ceremony that they spent months planning. Someone was watching over them that day and although we had periods of rain, we also had dry periods and all at the right time Then, amazingly, we were blessed with a spectacular sunset.
My day started with the girls at the Angourie Rainforest Resort. You just can't go wrong there, beautiful locations for photos, lovely rooms and Danielle really looks after you. The ceremony was held on the grass above Main Beach Pool, Yamba with the backdrop being a vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean. We were dodging showers during our location photos but found some protection from the rain at the Angourie Blue Pools. The raindrops sat like pearls on the spindly Casuarina leaves and glistened in the dappled light. After the Blue Pools we headed to Pilot Hill, Yamba to catch the last of the sun rays as they bounced off the clouds in vivid oranges and purples.
Rebecca and Leon were my last wedding couple for 2010-2011 wedding year and what a way to finish! My weddings start again on 27th August 2011 and I can't wait see what this year brings me!
